Uptown Medical Aesthetics Can Help You Retain Your Youth
Though aging is a normal part of life, we all want to hold onto our youth as long as possible. This can be difficult when fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. The development of wrinkles can begin in your thirties, sometimes even before, and will worsen as you age. However, with treatment from Uptown Medical Aesthetics, you can fight the common signs of aging, including laugh lines. At our clinic in Northglenn, CO, we provide a range of cosmetic treatment options to help our patients smooth wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin blemishes, all with the goal of making them feel more confident in their appearance. If you would like to learn more about our treatment for laugh lines, please reach out to us today.
What Are Laugh Lines?
Laugh lines, which are also known as smile lines, parentheses lines, or nasolabial folds, are the lines that appear around your mouth when you smile or make other facial expressions. These lines extend from the outer corners of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth. The appearance of these lines occurs in every individual, which is why treatment for smile lines is so common. It is one of our most popular treatments at Uptown Medical Aesthetics.
What Causes Smile Lines?
Smile lines are caused by repeated facial expressions that contract the muscles of the face. Every time you laugh or smile, your muscles contract to pull your mouth wide in a grin. While it’s never a bad thing to smile, the repeated movement of the facial muscles can begin to form wrinkles. When you’re young, your skin has enough elasticity to snap back into place after your smile relaxes. But as you age, your skin loses this ability, and your smile lines begin to become permanent, showing even when you aren’t actively smiling. The older you get, the deeper and more prominent these wrinkles, sometimes resulting in permanent folds around your mouth. For this reason, it’s best to address smile lines when you first begin to notice their appearance.
We Offer Two Treatment Options for Laugh Lines
At Uptown Medical Aesthetics, we’re focused on providing our patients with non-surgical treatment options for smile lines and other cosmetic concerns. We understand that you’ve likely tried all the creams, serums, and lotions only to see no improvement in your skin, but we’re here to provide treatment options that show noticeable results. To target laugh lines around the mouth, we offer two treatment options – injectable fillers and Botox®. Our professionals will assess the severity of your laugh lines and determine which treatment will work best for your unique situation. You can count on us to deliver a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Injectable Fillers Add Volume & Smooth Wrinkles
Dermal fillers are an excellent option for treating mild to severe laugh lines. Many of these injectable serums contain hyaluronic acid, which works to smooth and soften wrinkles by adding volume to the affected area. The result is a naturally youthful appearance, and you’ll notice a difference right away. Perhaps the best part about dermal fillers is the effects can last up to a year! We offer a range of these injectable fillers, and our team can help you find the right solution to address your concerns. At Uptown Medical Aesthetics, you’ll have your choice between the following injectable fillers:
- Juvéderm XC
Botox® Reduces Fine Lines & Prevents New Wrinkles
Botox® works to stop wrinkles in their tracks, not only helping to smooth and soften existing wrinkles but also helping to prevent the formation of new ones. This injectable treatment contains a purified protein that stops the nerves from sending signals to the muscles in the area. Due to this, the muscles can no longer contract, which is the driving force behind the formation of wrinkles. Botox® temporarily stops the muscles from moving, which relaxes them and smooths fine lines around the mouth. It also helps to stop the appearance of new wrinkles that would have been caused by continued muscle movement. The results of Botox® take a few days to appear but can last for several months.
